Captain Morgan Cannon Blast - Crannon Blast Recipe  - 5 o'Clock Friday

Have you noticed those cannon ball looking bottles at the store recently? They are Captain Morgan Cannon Blast. I kept seeing it and was intrigued so I bought a bottle last week. Delicious! It tastes citrusy at first but then kind of finishes with a mild cinnamon flavor. If you are drinking it just as a shot, I prefer it cold. Taking a look at the Captain Morgan website I found this recipe for the Crannon Blast which would be perfect on Thanksgiving I think with the addition of the cranberry juice! Recipe and photo from Captain Morgan.

Do you think you would try this on Thanksgiving or any other day?

I don’t believe I have tried normal Captain Morgan, let alone the Cannon Blast variety, but it’s a fun idea to serve cranberry drinks with cranberry sauce and other seasonal items.
